Was just a bit confused as to why breeders get their eggs in the incubators in January in order to get big birds!
If you set eggs in Jan- you will have chicks in February
-as i said in my earlier post. As you have Croad Langshans ( are they the black or white?) with them being large, heavy, soft feather, I would leave it until next year- then they will have reached their maximum growth and should, with lots of tender care
be ready for the show bench. If you are only hatching a few- you will be lucky to pick out one or two specimens as close to the breed standard as you can- and only breed from the best you can find/afford.
Keep us informed and good luck on your hatch!
